This month’s sketchbook images are brought to you by Master of Art + Design student Jaime Andrews (New Media & Animation).
It’s been an outstanding year for Master of Architecture student Shawna Hammon. Not only was she recently awarded the Kamphoefner Honor Fellowship award, she also placed fourth in the international CTBUH Tall Building Student Competition out of 357 submissions from 89 countries last month in Shanghai. She was one of only two students representing the United States and the only student in the East Coast.
Hammon was also chosen by AIAS to be February 2012′s Chapter Leader of the Month and she won first place at the NC State Graduate Student Research Symposium in the Humanities and Design category with Jessie Braverman for their research on “a look at prototypical architectural design and its potential uses as shelter.”
Another major highlight of her year was getting engaged to her long-time boyfriend (now fiancé) and studying abroad this semester in Italy to quench her “obsession with the renaissance” and be fully immersed in Italian language and culture.
